Email accounts

This is the 2nd time in less than 2 weeks an email account has locked me out. Yahoo. It will send me a link in an old email Eudora account I no longer have or remember a silly question that I don't remember the answer too. So I am SOL?

I tried to set up a new account and they require a mobile number. I don't want to use one. Google is starting that too.

Who do you all use and are you happy with it and is it secure in your view?

I know this isn't ebook related but we have to have email accounts to do anything, buy books, etc...

Thanks.

You get what you pay for. Free isn't always a good deal.

The mobile number option is not required. You can say "remind me later" or something similar, and get past that question. I just did it recently.

Google doesn't force you to give a phone number.
I stopped using Yahoo mail a long time ago.
Gmail works for me.

True, although I had a pay email service that was there one day and the next gone with no warning taking all my saved email with it (I had backups which were stolen a week later ). So sometimes you don't even get what you pay for.

I know it's old school, but I still have an AOL account from way way way back. I've never had an issue with it, and I am not a paid subscriber any more. I was way back in dial up days.
I'm pretty sure you can still sign up for free email through them.

Nothing in the world is perfect.

I own my own domain name. I have an ISP that delivers to that domain name. I use POP3 to deliver that email to my local machine. I trust nothing on the cloud and I backup-backup-backup.

The only email I've ever lost was due to my own stupidity.

The whole point of the mobile number is that it stops you from being locked out. With both Hotmail and Gmail they'll send a code to your mobile that you can enter to re-enable your account if you do lose access.

These days I use Gmail for most things.

How do you do this and what is the cost?

During this search I have been doing I read mostly how the government reads your emails and how google takes words from your private emails for searches, etc. etc.

But I am mostly concerned with hacking my email account. And how Yahoo & Google keeps making me come up with stupid questions or mobile numbers or other hoops to jump through just to get on to my email.

Yeah but I was reading on Google Gmail that if I log in my email from say my Ipod Touch it will make me go through the mobile number to get a code to sign in

If I am not on the same computer it says it will do that. This is how banking is going now days too. This is making it harder for the average person to even log in anymore.

I've never had to do that when logging into Gmail on different devices.

Get a domain (annual fee varies) and a hosting account somewhere (mine's $4 a month), or at least that's how I do it.
